Oh Mal-Soon (Nah Moon-hee) is a 74-year-old widow that realizes she is becoming a burden on her family. As she is roaming the streets, she comes across a photo studio and decides to dress up for a self- portrait. When she walks out of the photo studio, she mysteriously turns back into her twenty year old self. Making the most out of this one in a lifetime opportunity, she changes her name to Oh Doo-Ri (Sim Eun-kyeong) and decides to make the most out of her youth.
About the film
High grossing comedies such as "Sunny - 2010" and "Miracle in Cell No.7" have a few things in common: funny and unique characters, a well-structured story that will make you laugh and cry, and the cast’s amazing performance. "Miss Granny" has all these essential elements that appeal to everyone regardless of age; with an extraordinary plot that depicts the adventure of a 74 year old stuck in a 20 year old body, "Miss Granny" is selected as one of the most anticipated upcoming Korean movie in January 2014. From teenagers to seniors, "Miss Granny" is a movie that all family members can enjoy together.
Director Hwang Dong-hyeok said that he was strongly attracted to the story not only because of its well- structured storyline, but also because of its potential to appeal to all different age groups. After his success with his second feature length film "The Crucible", he wanted to challenge himself by directing a comedy feature length film. Rising actress Sim Eun-kyeong (from "Sunny - 2010" and "Masquerade") plays the younger version of 74 year old widow OH Mal-Soon (changes her name to OH Doo-Ri).

  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "Miss Granny": Mind the Gap

    In the Spotlight this Week: Hwang Dong-hyuk's "Miss Granny"… In 2011 director Hwang Dong-hyuk adapted Gong Ji-young's "Silenced" (aka "Silenced") into a 4.6 million admissions hit. It was a particularly meticulous melodrama that depicted the sexual abuse of a group of hearing impaired students at a school in Gwangju. The serious and cruel sanity of "Silenced" was hard-hitting and rather thrilling; a sympathetic story that breathed cinematic life into Gong's popular novel and, in turn, placed the real-world tragedy firmly back in the public's consciousness,...More

Those who enjoyed "Miracle in Cell No.7" will no doubt appreciate Hwang's efforts here. Enjoy!,...More
  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "Miss Granny"

    What really sells "Miss Granny" is the sincerity of its dual performances. Nah Moon-Hee and Sim Eun-kyeong both play Mal-soon, a crabby old woman who randomly lucks into the gift of a twenty-year old body. Even though the main explicit character trait of Mal-soon is that she has a smart mouth and doesn't care what other people say about her, Nah Moon-hee does not play an unconditionally bitter, mean old woman. She has doubts and regrets- and is coming off a fairly complicated emotional state when the movie's actual plot starts up,...More
